Hand surgery is the field of medicine that specifically deals with problems of the hand, wrist and forearm. Common hand problems include carpal tunnel syndrome, deQuervain’s syndrome, work-related injuries, trigger finger, wrist pain, sports injuries, fractures, arthritis, nerve and tendon injuries. Not all problems treated by a hand surgeon require surgery. Many of these problems can be treated non-surgically such as with medication, splints, casts, occupational therapy or steroid injections. However, other problems must be treated surgically by the hand surgeon who is specifically trained to operate when necessary.
